Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars with that elusive golden-crisp crust of a bite? Affirmative.

Another Snow day- in a lovely, fairy tale string of beautiful snow days. This winter back in New England has warmed this Yankee girl's soul with abundant bird watching, intriguing animal tracks, and icy waterfalls. And on magical occasions, a startling fox encounter (what a handsome rake he was, his thick red coat against the snow!), and the sweep of a yellow hawk pair whisking the clear blue air above us. 

Life in the woods of northern Connecticut also triggers a pleasantly familiar hankering. 

A craving for a home baked treat- something both sweet and comforting, both old-fashioned and post-modern gluten-free/dairy-free. So we experimented (as we often do, driven by a cupboard bare of snow day treats).

And dear reader, I am glad to tell you, we have a delicious new favorite. These bars are like an oatmeal cookie, but thicker, and slightly crunchy golden on top (and around the edges). Eaten warm from the oven, the chocolate chips are melty and soft. Wait- did I just say, melty? Well. It's true. Forgive the foodie-speak.

As mentioned above, these bars are dairy-free (we used organic coconut oil for the fat), which is good news for gluten-free dairy-free folks. We think they're perfect with a mug of hot coffee or tea. They make a lovely lunch dessert. And a good-enough-to-get-out-of-bed-you-sleepy-head breakfast bar.

The ingredients are simple, and not too complicated. Try 'em.

With love and snow day kisses,
